Summary
"Until recently, referendums were little used and discussed, particularly in the political landscape of the United Kingdom. After the seismic impact of the Brexit referendum, they have come to the fore as a mechanism with the potential to disrupt the status quo and radically change political direction. This book looks at the historical development of the referendum, its use in different jurisdictions, and the types of constitutional questions it seeks to address. Written in an engaging style, this offers a clear, objective overview of this important political and constitutional tool"--
